Welcome to Concordia Journal of Communication Research. We are excited to launch this on-line journal which primarily showcases outstanding undergraduate student scholarship in the field of communication studies.

The Department of Communication Studies at Concordia University-St. Paul  (CSP) is the creator and publisher of the on-line journal. Currently, the journal is published once a year with a summer issue, under the editorship of Dr. Kim Flottemesch, Associate Professor of Communication Studies. Submissions are collected from all students participating in communication courses in the Concordia University System and are put through a blind review process before accepted.

The purposes of the journal are:

  1. To publish the exceptional communication research of undergraduate students with in the Concordia University System as a means to showcase student’s talents and achievement.
